Subject Re: Getting started with solr 4.2 and cassandra
Date Mon, 01 Apr 2013 23:41:06 GMT
Thanks for the reply. So DSE is one of the options and I am looking into
that too.
Although, before diving into solr+cassandra integration (which comes out of
the box with DSE).

I am just trying to setup a solr instance on my local machine without the
bloat the "example" solr instance has to offer. Any suggestions about that?

Thanks,
